Bug Description

When comparing DSNs with fairly long hostnames plus port number, the results for the second machine show up as an ellipsis. In my case the FQDN plus port number for each machine was 38 characters (33 in the hostname), and I only saw the first 27 characters of the second host above the hidden results. If I modify use DSN to use non-FQDN for each, I see the results for both servers.

Thanks for the report. We shorten the values so they don't linewrap. However there have been other complaints that the format of the report isn't very useful, so it is possible we will change this in the future. It even seems reasonable to print out something like this at the beginning:

A = host1
B = host2

And then use A and B thereafter.

That would be great. I was think it could be done per query type

# Query N: ID ..
# Server1: hostname:port
# Server2: hostname:port
# Found X differences
# ..
# Server 1 Server2

The main issue I have with the truncation is the results for the second server are shown as '...' the hostname truncation is more off a side effect.
